Horses can be inherently dangerous so we always need volunteers who have at least one year's experience in catching, leading, grooming, tying and riding horses. We do not have time to teach raw beginners and still train our adoptable horses here. Farriers are needed but we do teach basic horse trimming too. Ideally volunteers can stand long hours, walk and run easily, think on their feet and lift heavy loads like hay bales or help us decorate stalls at shows or lift full wheel barrows after we clean stalls. We do not have wheelchair access at the farm. If children want to volunteer, age 10 and up, their parents must remain with them at the farm at all times when we are not a free babysitting service. Thanks.
More details coming soon!
For every volunteer hour we will give an hour's worth of riding or horsemanship lessons. The director has been working horses over 50+ years and we are happy to share that knowledge and experience if volunteers are willing to help us work the horses too. This is not a riding camp for kids, but a horse stable and riding barn when we want to train to go to area horse shows and fairs.
Training adoptable horses to ride or ground drive as well as halter and some basic manners so they are more adoptable to potential homes. The more folks work with each horse the more adoptable they become. We also need feeding and fencing help too or everything is needed to house horses at the rescue.
Join us build fencing at our new location near Spokane and help us work horses so we can get them into new homes!
Volunteers who help on the farm and at our events get first dibs on our adoptable horses so we can see if they are a good match with visiting more than once.
